Cunningham: Devon Will Put a Turban on Khan's Head!

By Ryan Burton

Over the weekend a story ran on BoxingScene.com in which Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer said that he was close to finalizing a deal to pit IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander (25-1, 14KOs) against former unified junior welterweight champion Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs). According to the article Dubai is strongly being considered to host the event.

Yesterday Alexander's trainer and manager Kevin Cunningham made it clear that they would only consider taking the fight in Dubai if the money was huge. 

Alexander is no stranger to fighting overseas. As a decorated amateur he fought all over the world and in 2008 as a professional he defeated Sun-Haeng Lee in China.

Cunningham reiterated that they have no problem facing Khan in Dubai, where as a Muslim, Khan would overwhelmingly have the support of the fans even though he is a Pakistani-Briton.

"Devon has fought in China as a pro and all over the world as an amateur so this wouldn't be anything new.  If the price is right, Devon will go to Dubai and put a turban on Khan's head."

Cunningham shows a lack of class and intelligence. Its almost like all the punches Alexander took have taken an effect on Cunningham's brain.

On a serious note, that is up there in the 'worst ever attempts at racism' standings. It doesn't even make any f*cking sense, it's as if he thought about pakistanis and the first thing that popped into his head was…
